[ voice of dennis ] allstate. with accident forgiveness, they guarantee your rates won't go up just because of an accident. smart kid. [ voice of dennis ] indeed. are you in good hands? >> john: before we could even shake off our collective fiscal cliff fatigue it's now back to the doldrums of the debt ceiling debate, my friends. yes, unfortunately if you prefer your doomsday scenarios few and far between then washington, d.c. is no place for you. the newest wound that republicans in congress are considering inflicting upon ourselves and our fragile economy is defaulting on our financial obligations by refusing to raise the debt ceiling, something they agreed to rather effortlessly 25 times under george w. bush and ronald reagan. this would be the decision that would be only as disastrous as it is profoundly unnecessary. because the truth is, as president obama noted yesterday the u.s. economy's actually p
are considering inflicting upon ourselves and our fragile economy is defaulting on our financial obligations by refusing to raise the debt ceiling, something they agreed to rather effortlessly 25 times under george w. bush and ronald reagan. this would be the decision that would be only as disastrous as it is profoundly unnecessary. because the truth is, as president obama noted yesterday the u.s. economy's actually poised for a good year if only congress can get out of the way. i kind of paraphrased that last part. now that we know we're not going to be minting a trillion dollar coin, we need something different. a bill that would repeal the debt ceiling altogether. it is an idea supported publicly by alan greenspan and times man of the year last year, ben bernanke. it is an idea that could prevent lawmakers from lurching our country from one crisis to the next just to ring out some short-term gain until another republican sits in the oval office. that's why it's probably an idea that this congress has no chance of making law. but joining me now is one of the sponsors of the bill to repeal
think almost all those moves are really good. what we need to do in almost every sector of the economy is move beyond our dependence on fossil fuel and invest in in clean energies instead. every time we do that we'll put more people to work, we'll cut emissions, and we'll keep our air clean and water safe. if we keep jesting in dirty fuel projects whether it's the tar sands from canada or the coal in the pacific northwest or fracking in west virginia, ohio and mission. michigan. the more we do what we're doing the more we'll stay stuck in the fossil fuel economy. >> cenk: you mentioned the sand stone there. >> when you hear a speech like the president made today it becomes clear that he's committed to fighting climate change. the first test, the first big test that the president will have is whether to approve or reject this pipeline. i'm confident that he'll reject it. i really am. you simply cannot be committed to fighting climate change and then simultaneously invest in the most dirty carbon-intensive oil source on the planet. this is the first test for the president whether he or n
? over 5 million new jobs, saved the auto industry, brought this economy back. it still has a long ways to go. got the star treaty approved by the united states.s. senate and remember, he did get osama bin laden, led this country on the issue of same-sex marriage, the first president to do so. pardon me, and the point is, two great women to the supreme court. now, looking ahead, that's the first question. what do you think about that first term? 866-55 press. are you yesterday? second, what do you want to see in the second term? i tell you what we are already seeing: a lot more backbone on the part of president obama. it is worken, proven by the fact that the republicans in the house caved over the weekend on the debt ceiling and said, all right. they will extend it for only three months, not good enough. they said they will extend it notno strings attached without all of the cuts to social security and medicare they had been demanding bluffs president obama, we got his back and he stays tough, gets things done in this second term. let's talk about it 866
for the economy, and even an economic catastrophe for which republicans were blamed would still be an economic catastrophe. and i think sometimes people forget there are obligations that go beyond being [ overlapping speakers ] >> -- liberal. >> jennifer: yes, in his press conference he made it clear he is not going to concentrate on the debt ceiling. and made it easy to understand reasons why we're not going to negotiate, when we have already acquired the services but i will say i completely agree with you, all of those people who say if he just gets them in a room and has them in there without food or water long enough they'll cave or if he waives his magic wand clearly they will bengd. >> it's like the green lantern theory. i think he's going to have to end up making recessions. you can decide not to negotiate with the terrorist, but then they are going to kill the hostage. once you are negotiating with terrorists you are negotiating terrorists, you can say i am negotiating with terrorists but not about that. that's not how it works. i think obama has won every stan
for impeachment, imagine what kind of trouble he would get in if he actually fixed the economy or brought about world peace. alan grayson is here, and welcome back inside "the war room" and welcome back to congress. i know i'm a little late saying it, but welcome back. >> thanks i gave a speech about that scenario if the participate brought about world peace, and i said the republicans would accuse him of ruining the military. >> jennifer: do you agree that the executive branch has some degree of authority. >> it's interesting that they want to impeach him before he said what the executive orders were. but as long as they can't impeach him for being black, he is really not in any danger. [ laughter ] >> jennifer: so what are -- what are central floridians telling you about -- i mean this gun issue is very hot today. are you hearing from people in florida about assault weapons versus gun show loopholes? what are you hearing? >> there are a small number of people who are absolutely bent on avoiding any sort of gun control, and we do a lot of polling locally, and there is a

the old fossil fuel based economy from the last century to the near zero emission energy system of the 21st century, then he needs to deny the permit to this pipeline and send a signal that we cannot be expanding last century's fossil fuel infrastructure and expect to wind up with a 21st 21st century energy system. >> cenk: all right let's keep it real. if he does approve it, is he sending the opposite signal, that i just talked about climate change but in reality, i don't think it's that big a deal. >> so far it's hard to really identify anything concrete that president obama has done on the climate issue to really bring down emissions. if he approves key stone he can excel, that will be a concrete action to increase emissions and i think that president obama's legacy on the climate issue will be a shameful one. >> cenk: strong language. by the way, out of curiosity what do you think he's going to do? >> well, you know, i'm not one to predict the future. put it this way i've never been proven wrong by being too cynical. >> cenk: well, you and me both, brother. i'm a little worried. as yo

of the essential players in the economy, and so i'm hoping that the -- the mostly republican large corporate executives and businesses and wall street weigh in and grab these people by the collar and say are you crazy? the consequences are so bad? and if you think that the right-wingers are the only ones that are going to play in the next election you are mistaken. the chamber of commerce, business round table, et cetera could play an important role here and some reality check with some of these. some of us have introduced legislation that would actually repeal the debt ceiling. it's only us and denmark that has a debt ceiling and all of the countries of the world. >> stephanie: right. >> and we should just get rid of that rule. >> stephanie: yeah, i agree. and it's interesting to your other point. even newt gingrich made that point that the financial community is going to come in. he basically said it's a political loser, stop bluffing about it. >> right. >> stephanie: but we saw the same talking points yesterday. >> yeah, the john boehner part scares me, because i thou
